ACEDS, UK Chapter
Thank you for supporting our team in fundraising for the London Legal Walk. We will be walking 10k on Tuesday 28th June to help fund much needed frontline free legal advice services.
Our team is: Emily Wyllie-Ballard, Melina Efstathiou, Bryant Isbell, James MacGregor, Nicola Woodfall, Clare Chalkley, Philip Demetriou, Jeff Shapiro
We are walking with the Lord Chief Justice and thousands of lawyers to raise funds for the London Legal Support Trust, this is the biggest fundraising event in aid of free legal advice and support for everything from Law Centres and Citizens Advice services to refugee specialist support services.
Two-thirds of the UK population don't know how to get legal advice and 14 million people who live in poverty can't afford to pay for it. The London Legal Walk raises vital funds to ensure that legal help reaches our communities' most vulnerable people. Receiving good legal advice at the right time can make a huge difference to people's lives reducing their chances of facing debt, poverty, homelessness, exploitation and discrimination.
Your support is needed now more than ever with the long-term challenges brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. Reduced funding in the charity sector means advice agencies are under more pressure ever before whilst facing unprecedented need.
The event supports over 100 legal advice agencies in London and the South East. We know that these agencies do a fantastic job in changing people's lives.
Please sponsor our walkers as generously as you are able.
Many thanks for your support.
